*disclaimer: i do not own alias I searched to see if someone had written about this possible scenario yet, but found nothing so I wrote it myself. Here's the idea: Sydney doesn't escape from her mother's custody in "The Enemy Walks In". The story picks up right after Irina shot her. I could have prevented all this of course.The words still rang in Sydney's ears even after the sound of the bullet. After over twenty years, she had met her mother again. Her mother. That woman might be back any moment. She had to get out. She struggled against her bonds desperately, trying to free herself. The wound in her shoulder burned with every movement. She stared around the room and finally spotted a water valve along the wall. She struggled to stand from her position on the floor and managed to get up without falling down. All the while on the verge of crying in pain. Wedging the chair legs against the valve, the flimsy chair finally gave way and collasped, though the legs were still stuck on her handcuffs. Next came the door. After a quick search of the room's content, she found what she needed: A tank of compressed air and a cement brick. With the compressed air tank leaning on the cement block, she struck at the valve with a wrench. After a few strikes, the valve broke and the tank tore across the room and through the locked door. Taking a hold on the chair legs dangling from her handcuffs, she proceeded through the door and up a small flight of stairs. There, she met the first guard. Before he could move, she kicked him. He came at her again, but she struck him across the face with a chair leg. The guard fell down the stairs in a state of unconsciousness. Sydney continued down the hall only to stop short. Another guard stepped out into the hallway. His gun was trained on her. She jumped at him, but not soon enough. The gun went off and her world became dark. Again.
